Mod_syndicate in J!1.5 not working

Mod_syndicate (the syndicate module) is included in the Joomla 1.5 core and is easy to use. You simply publish & assign it to the appropriate menu item, choose mode of feed (RSS or atom) & before you know it, you have a link on the page to subscribe to a feed of that page..... or do you?

A couple of things to keep in mind when you set up your RSS feed:

1. The module will only create an RSS feed for a page with a blog format - for example a blog layout for a section or category

2. Secondly, your menu item parameter must also be primed for feeds. i.e. In the backend (administrator) of your site go to menu items / relevant menu/menu item/ then on right hand side - select advanced parameters and check the box labelled "show feed link".
